circular hair loss

Circular hair loss is an immune attack on the hair roots. Round, bald areas on the head devel­op very quick­ly, not so often the beard or oth­er areas are affect­ed by this type of hair loss.

Circular hair loss is a form of hair loss that main­ly affects young men. Every man it affects knows how stress­ful the bald, round areas in the hair can be. But don’t wor­ry. We explain where this type of hair loss comes from, what trig­gers it and what you can do about it.

Not only women, but also men attach great impor­tance to their hair and reg­u­lar­ly try out new styles. So it’s all the worse if your hair falls out. One form of hair loss is cir­cu­lar hair loss. This hair dis­ease most often occurs in men between 20 and 40 years of age. The ear­li­er this hap­pens, the loss of hair becomes a major bur­den, espe­cial­ly for younger men.

What is circular hair loss?

The cause of cir­cu­lar hair loss (Alopecia area­ta) has not yet been clar­i­fied. Experts assume that a dis­tur­bance of the body’s own defence sys­tem is respon­si­ble for the devel­op­ment. It is assumed that the body’s defence cells attack the body’s own hair and trig­ger inflam­ma­tion in the sud­den onset of the dis­ease. This then leads to a stand­still in hair growth and final­ly to hair loss. The exact cause of this autoim­mune reac­tion is not yet known. What is spe­cial about cir­cu­lar hair loss is that it occurs only par­tial­ly — in oval areas that are sep­a­rat­ed from the rest of the hair. In the hair, rarely in the beard, in the face or in the body hair, sin­gle, round, hair­less spots usu­al­ly form rel­a­tive­ly quick­ly or also inter­mit­tent­ly. At the edge of the hair­less spots there are usu­al­ly short, bro­ken-off hairs, so-called “excla­ma­tion marks”, “com­ma” or “plunger” hairs. To the pore on the skin, they are thin­ner.

What triggers circular hair loss?

The exact caus­es of this dis­ease are unknown. Doctors assume that this is a false reac­tion of the body’s immune sys­tem. Instead of fight­ing dan­ger­ous virus­es and bac­te­ria, the immune cells are sud­den­ly direct­ed against the body’s own hair. Circular hair loss is thought to be asso­ci­at­ed with oth­er autoim­mune dis­eases such as dia­betes or thy­roid dis­ease. Some physi­cians are also con­vinced that psy­cho­log­i­cal influ­ences can also favour the devel­op­ment of the dis­ease. This is sup­port­ed by the fact that cir­cu­lar hair loss often occurs after emo­tion­al­ly stress­ful life events. Especially in chil­dren and ado­les­cents, stress often seems to be the cause of the dis­ease.
